What if anyone could have a baby? A thought-provoking and unforgettable novel from a rising star.

Now anyone can have a baby. With FullLife’s safe and affordable healthcare plan, the brave new world is here. Without the pouch, Eva might not have been born. And yet she has sacrificed her career, and maybe even her relationship, campaigning against FullLife’s biotech baby pouches. Despite her efforts, everyone prefers a world where women are liberated from danger and constraint and all can share the joy of childbearing. Perhaps FullLife has helped transform society for the better? But just as Eva decides to accept this, she discovers that something strange is happening at FullLife. Piotr hasn’t seen Eva in years. Not since their life together dissolved in tragedy. But Piotr’s a journalist who has also uncovered something sinister about FullLife. What drove him and Eva apart may just bring them back together, as they search for the truth behind FullLife’s closed doors, and face a truth of their own. A beautiful story about family, loss and what our future might hold, The Growing Season is an original and powerful novel by a rising talent.
